This is a well curated display that informs you about a sad part of Lithuanian history. It is a self guided tour, well documented and directed so you can go as fast or as slow as you want. It will take some time to read...More

The museum was formerly the headquarters of the KGB. The basement contains prison cells and torture cells. The execution cell now shows a video depicting the horrors that took place there.

Easily the most terrifying basement I’ve been in. The museum is set up in way that beat remembers those who tragically lost their lives. Well worth the visit.

This is an extraordinary commemoration of those tortured and murdered under Soviet occupation in Lithuania, and the complexities of the history of this region. It is especially powerful for being housed in the former KGB headquarters/prison and murder site. Should not be missed but allow...More

We walked from the KGB museum to what I would call the centre of the city (decent shops, restaurants) in about 10 minutes. Another 10 minutes to the touristy areas.
